Dustin Johnson Drops Out of the PGA Tour; Confirms Resignation

Dustin Johnson Drops Out of the PGA Tour; Confirms Resignation

The 37-year Golfer says he is content with playing for LIV Golf.

The resignation of Dustin Johnson from the PGA Tour comes as a shocker since the Golfer was about to be given a lifetime membership. The news of Johnson resigning comes after his fellow companions- Kevin Na, Louis Oosthuizen, Sergio Garcia, Charl Schwartzel, and Branden Grace have also decided to resign from the PGA Tour. With 20 PGA Tour winnings in his pot, Johnson, however, promises to play the upcoming 4 championships.

"For the time being, I have resigned from the Tour. I'm going to play here, and that's the plan, " Johnson stated on Tuesday. He also mentioned his ambiguity on how the tour was going to cope with the changes.
World no. 15 Golf Champion also holds a lifetime exemption into the year's first major championship, as well as exemptions into the PGA Championship, Open Championship, and U.S. Open through 2025 and 2026, respectively.

"I can't speak for the majors," Johnson added, "but maybe they'll let us play." "I am exempt from the majors, so unless I hear otherwise, I intend to play there."
That means Johnson might be on American soil next week at The Country Club for the year's third major title, the 2022 U.S. Open.
However, it is very improbable if we would see him at the Ryder Cup or not.

The former world no.1 also mentioned his willingness to participate in the Ryder Cup; “Obviously, the Ryder Cup is unbelievable, and it is something that has meant a lot to me. I am proud to say I have played and represented my country. Hopefully, I'll get a chance to do that again, but you know, I don't make the rules."
